100 thoughts on “Donald Trump Digs In On Racially Divisive Attacks As 2020 Strategy | Deadline | MSNBC

  1. Michelle is onto something here. The true irony is that Trump doesn't merely hold dark people in contempt, he holds his own white voters in contempt.

  2. I wish a republican can stand up to trump and grow a pair. I do not believe that all republicans are racist please stand up for your party and stop being such cowards. Our American Flag is Red and Blue because are great America was built with both parties working together.

  3. Achie bunker demographic… lol
    How spot on…
    And if Moscow mitch can keep his end of the deal and further suppress the voter turn out…
    With Russian help again..
    We are so f*ck*d…

  4. America needs a fundamental reform. It needs a third and fourth and even fifth party. This 100% change every four or 8 years is destroying social cohesion. It has turned America into three blocks: the Republicans – a powerful and active group, that appeals to the basic instincts of American culture like greed and self-esteem; the Democrats – a woozy floozy collection of strong talkers and weak doers without any power; and a large block of desperate people who have given up hope America will change its political system for the better. It is a country that is going to experience lots of hard rain that's gonna fall.

  5. Rat+rodent = redundant. I am a human. I was born in Baltimore City. I didn’t have any say in it. I lived there because I didn’t die.

  6. As long as we have Battleground States and the electoral college, we're fuked! Because, no matter who wins, they can choose someone else! Our elections should be won by the person that "we the people" vote into office!!!

  7. Wait….  EVEN IF Trump's "base" decides he is a racist, doesn't mean they WON'T vote for him….  IN FACT – It seems pretty obvious that being a racist pig is at the top of the list of qualifications for their "preferred" candidate. Right above, "Stupid" "misogynistic" & "Con artist"

  8. It's the Dem's who are using the RACE CARD , it's the only card they have left ! The Dem's will go extinct by their own doing ! It will be a GREAT country without them !

  9. In the Black Community as long as you have a Black representative in Congress no matter if he's worthless that's supposed to mean you've arrived . Well no it mean you're no further down the road than you was before . Another exercise in futility . It's about more than just putting a Black in office Alfie .

  10. The Creep Squad. Trump and Epstein. Coming to a middle school near you. You're not afraid of the dark when you are the Monster 👹

  11. You Libs refused to prosecute Hillary. So We The People……prosecuted YOUR PARTY in her place. This is how the Middle Class riots. Trump 2020. Landslide. You people did that. And we thank you for it……

  12. 400 MILLION WENT TO BALTIMORE where is it?? the former mayor said : "U CAN SMELL THE DEAD RATS" yes wtf is the fcnn new mayor doing? 40 FCNN MILLION MISSING!

  13. This guy is a billionaire …. he should be able to get the right shade of foundation. No surprise he can't run the country…

  14. Left wing media still hoping people buy into their strategy of calling a President that has done more for blacks and minorities than any other, a racist..NOT HAPPENING.

  15. Even if he is talking about slavery, that doesn't matter he hates browns more than blacks. So to say that he is trying to fix his relationships with blacks. What about all of the browns he has insulted? Trump will always be racist no matter what. And he hates all equally. But they are only talking about blacks wich is wrong.

  16. The LORD will expose, his intention. You have no African-American problem, you have a lying problem. All of a sudden the racist attack act, is dead on arrival. The Lord put that to rest, no man is loved no better the next man. NO RESPECTIVE PERSON.

  17. MAY WE GET THE BEST, OF THE BEST NEXT. MAKE A GOOD DECISION FOR THE WORLD WAITS ON OUR POLLS. IT'S NOT JUST U.S. OF AMERICA BUT THE WORLD LOOKING FOR A CHANGE IN THE 2020 ELECTION. WE ALL WANTS CHANGE. AND WE WANT IT NOW. AMEN. JESUS SAID YOU MADE ONE STEP, HE WILL MAKE THE NEXT MOVE FOR US. IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. AMEN .

  18. IM ASHAMED TO WITNESS THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOUR FROM A PRESIDENT.

    AMERICA HOW COULD YOU.
    YOU HAVE SO MUCH SINS
    TO PAY FOR, BUT YOU STILL WON'T LEARN.

    YOUR JUDGEMENT IS COMING.
    PREPARE FOR THE RETURN OF THE MESSIAH.

  19. I love Trump ! he is GREAT and has some Fantastic sons with Don Jr and Eric , wow , So succesful & an American Dream . The Russia thing is a HOAX , Garbage Fake News . God Bless the Flag & Anthem #2020 !! Thank you

  20. Trump feels comfy in his real racist element now because he knows that Putin’s got his back in election tampering and #MoscowMitch sealed it in his most recent move to protect Russian interference. Trump is locked in.

  21. You guys are not even considering the voter suppression push by the GOP that will affect the turnout and outcome of the black vote in 2020, combined with Russian election interference in favor of Trump.

  22. .. STUPID PEOPLE THINK TRUMP IS RACIST .. BALTIMORE POLITICIANS TOOK $$$$ BILLIONS TO "HELP" POOR AND THEY PUT ALL MONEY IN THEIR POCKETS

  23. Stupid people listening to liberal lies. You should go to Baltimore and hear what people say about Cummings. It's not good. Trump speaks the truth. This media lies to America

  24. If trump "wins" the next elections, DO NOT RECOGNIZE THE RESULTS democrats. He wouldn't recognize them if you won and throw the country into chaos, better to have chaos than to consolidate that russian asset, no matter the cost.

  25. WE TOTALLY AGREE THAT THE ENTIRE DEMON RATS PARTY ARE RACISTS SPECIALLY THE AOC LUNATICS LIKE OMAR WHO MARRIED HER BROTHER – THE 2ND DEMON RATS DEBATE WAS A TOTAL DISASTER – IT WAS A CLOWN SHOW – NON OF THE CANDIDATES HAD ANY INTELLIGENCE AT ALL – MOST HAD AN IQ THAT OF A COMMON GARDEN SNAIL – GIBBERISH CAME OUT OF THEIR CAKE HOLES – OUR PRESIDENT WILL HAVE THEM ALL FOR BREAKFAST IN 2020 – HA-HA-HA-HA !!!! IT WILL BE SUCH AN EASY WIN WHEN THE MEGA WAVE FLUSHES THE MARXIST DEMON RATS PARTY DOWN THE TOILET WERE THEY REALLY BELONG !!!!!!!!! SKY NEWS IN AUSTRALIA JUST HAD A TV SPECIAL ON A FEW DAYS AGO WHEN A CAMERA CREW WENT INTO BALTIMORE AND FILMED WHOLE NEIGHBOUR HOODS OF BURNED OUT HOUSES – DAMAGED HOUSES – EMPTY AND TRASHED HOUSES – BOARDED UP HOUSES AND YES THEY SHOWED COCKROACHES AND RATS RUNNING AROUND – IT IS A DISGRACE WHAT THAT NARCISSISTIC CUMMINGS AND HIS CROOKED WIFE DONE TO BALTIMORE – WE ARE SOOOO GLAD THAT OUR PRESIDENT POINTED THAT OUT TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THE WORLD !!!!!!! MEGA IN 2020

  26. I picture Trump sitting around with his friends watching Archie Bunker rant and wondering why everyone was laughing at Archie's ridiculous racially charged rhetoric, as Trump stands up from his recliner brushing the cheeseburger crumbs from his lap as he rushes to his office to write them down…Just sayin'

  27. People,,, trump is calling PUTTION

  28. He may want to throw the next election to save face from quitting!!! He never really wanted to be President anyway!!! Besides most of his properties are losing revenue!

  29. At 9:40 the reasons for the "Black Voter Turn Out In General Elections" drop from in 2012 @ 66.6% DOWN to in 2016 @ 59.6% was because of all the effort the Reps put in place prior to the election. With voter suppression, gerrymandering, machines down or very few working, causing extremely long line ups in predominantly black counties, not registering many because they didnt have a drivers license, to not even bothering to send out their registration cards or even removing them from the registration lists at polling stations. The list was endless. They tried to do some of it again in 2018 but Dems managed to stop majority of it. They targeted them mainly because majority DO vote for Democrats. The examples above have also been done in the predominantly Democratic counties/states as well. Reps CANT win on merits alone, only way to win is to cheat!

    I am SO sick of people who prey on others, in particular because they dont have the same color skin …

  30. These polls are wrong still playing poll games. I'm in the 80 percent (they say) that knows he is racist. The democratic's have taken the black vote for granted. This has nothing to do with trump and his people, even though they will keep telling that lie. We are not just now finding out trump is racist, just being against trump is not enough.

  31. Hitler didn't distroy Germany it was the ugly Germans behind him. Look at the ugly Americans behind American Hitler, shame Trumpers shame blood on your hands shame Trumpers shame bringing America down again.

  32. I think Drumpf styles his hair after Dennis the Menace! He is such a a disgusting, incompetent, complete and utter imbicil. What an embarrassment to this great country!

  33. Fire Nichole Wallace. She’s part of the problem n this country. This is a LIE. Force Nichole to prove where POTUS said he wants to exterminate Latinos. Charge her for inciting hate n the press! Get rid of her!!‬

  34. Pres. Trump won in 2016 and he will win in 2020…please MSNBC…do not set yourself again for a big disappointment. Or, go ahead…you whine every day anyway.

  35. Trump is puppet to anyone who will give him money, even if they murder a citizen of the country he serves. #khashoggi

    "They give me billions of dollars, why would I not like them?!"

    Thats a pretty accurate quote, why he made it one day beyond that as President is a travesty, an abomination. A literal traitor to his own people. But there he is, day after day……Wtff.

  36. Trump's a person doesn't listen to other comments, he wants peoples to loyalty to him , doesn't think doesn't have a heart for others then himself

  37. Trump DID lose the Popular Vote by 3 MILLION VOTES. Of course, he can be appointed by the ELECTORAL COLLEGE again unless the NEWS MEDIA starts pointing this out again and again.

  38. Please stop saying "African American" unless you say "European American." It's a nonsensical term for Black people.
